Some of the best food in the Del Mar area for the money. Service is not great but not bad either.

Always great execution of food here so we've come to expect a high caliber meal...so it was pretty disappointing to have the the acai bowl topped with a Jif-like PB .... a healthier, less processed PB would fit more with the price point & overall quality here.

This was my second visit to Sbicca and my bride's first time there. I took her for her birthday.
The table, view, service and food were amazing. The staff and the service made our night and the food is delicious! It's difficult to decide what eat, so many delicious tempting choices. They made a nice birthday celebration for my wife, she was very impressed and said it made her evening. I have dined her for lunch and dinner now, they were great for both. Lots of ambiance choices too: outdoors, dining room and rooftop with amazing ocean views. We'll be back!

An unremarkable dining experience. I ordered the “special” - four scallops with a whisper of spinach, asparagus, and romescu sauce. All for $36.50. Barely an appetizer. It was tasty and the scallops were cooked properly - but just not a portion befitting the price.

We were in and out in an hour - all business, no hospitality.

Food came out pretty quick. Tuna was good not spectacular for the price. Swordfish was flavorless and rubbery. Fried chicken didn’t tase any better then tender greens. Really not worth the price.

We have been dining at Sbicca for over 10 years as our favorite restaurant in San Diego, but sadly that’s now changed. After our last visit on Valentine’s Day we were rather disappointed for several reasons. The food was underwhelming - I ordered the surf and turf, which my steak was overcooked (asked for medium rare and it was medium well to well) and it came with a single scallop plus undercooked, under seasoned asparagus. They also changed our favorite dish - the pork prime rib, which has been replaced with a sub-par bbq version. We were one of the first seatings, so the poor food can’t be excused by a busy night. Service, as always, was great and the view is beautiful, but the last few times we have visited the attention to detail just isn’t there anymore and has lost that special quality it had for so long. It makes me very sad to say this, but this was our experience.

Astronomical pricing due to location. Food was good, but portioned very small, especially considering the price. Not much ambiance on the patio, as trees block the sunset view, and cars are consistently pulling up and taking off from right next to you. They were courteous with propane heaters. Service was amazing!

Went for brunch and overall I thought it was just ok. The food was not at level I expected for brunch and I’ve definitely had better food. Had the Del Mar Benedict and the sausage was overcooked and hard and the breakfast potatoes seemed like they were recooked or not done fresh. Tried the frittata also and again was just ok and a little overcooked. This was the brunch menu and the dinner pictures I saw look great so maybe give them another chance at dinner

We were directed to Sbicca by out-of-town friends who stayed in Del Mar. We now go there regularly and find the food to be excellent and the ambiance just right. The service is sometimes a little slow but polite and friendly. Sbicca has become out favorite restaurant in the area.
